to the south. Just at the northo aide of
the town comences a belL of copper
veins, many of which are argentlirous.
This is the kind of ore which has at
tractesd the most attention in this camp. 1
As it is customary, I shall call all the
holes that are eight or ten feet deep,
shafts, although there is little propriety
in the term when applied to them. Al- t
most in the edge of the town (at the
north side) is the Grey Eagle lode, the
discovery shaft of which is in a ravine, 8
is twelve feet deep, and water fills it to '
the surface. The vein is four feet wide t
and specimens which were assayed in- t
Denver City gave over $700 per ton in
silver. On No. 2 west from discovery t
there is a shaft thirty feet deep, where I
the vein is only half as wide as at thl t
discovery, and the rock very much de- a
composed. One hundred yards north of
this is the Original lode. This lode per
hael, shows better defined walls at the t'
surface and for a greater distance along tl
the vein than any other in Montana. Oa
the discovery is a shaft sixty feet deep.
On Nos. 1, 2,. , 4, 5 and 6, east, are shafts i
from eight to twelve feet deep, showing- t
a Vei from tour to five feet wide. On
some of these claims there is a consider
ab'le quantity of red quartz that pros
pects well in free gold. Nearly east from
the Original is the Parrott lode. This
also is a strong and well defined vein.
A shafton the discovery, thirty ftet de' p,
shows the vein three feet wide. On No.
3, west, there isa shaft twenty feet thep.
On the west end of No. 2, east, a shaft
eighty feet deep, where Messrs. Rams
dale mad Parks are now erecting a build
ing twenty feet wide by fifty long, to
cover hoisting works. The ore of this
lode, with a furnace properly cr.nstruc
ted, will be easily worked. Both it and
the Original have repeatedly yielded
assays of over two hundred dollars i-r
ton in silver. One quarter of a mile
nrthwest from the di.covery on th Ori
ginal, is tLte Mound bIae, located by J.
McPhee. This vein appears to be six or
seven feet wide, Iprincipally a greyish
quartz. In the center is a streak of ga
lena. specimens of which were assayed
in san Franctsco, and gave two hundred
and ninety-three dollars per ton in silver
w-'"h traces of gold. A short distance
.', th of the Mound are the Moscow,
Buffalo and M6untain lodes, all having
the appearance of being large veias. but
upon which there has been but little
work done. Last summer some parties
discovered a lode that they named the
Lererich. They sunk a shaft twelve teet
deep and have a vein uf copper ore eight
feet wide. It is about six hundred feet
east of the Mountain lode, and is sup
posed to be the same lode. One halt

mile north of these lodes is the Allie
Brown, owned by J. H. Brown, John Hiff
ner and Dr. McCan. On this vein there
is a shaft forty feet deep, which is now
being timbered by men in the employ
ofA. J. Davis, who, as I understand has
bought one halt ot the lode. Within
a radius of a mile of this there are many
fine looking veins-among them the
Wild Pat, upon which there is a shaft
thirty feet deep; the Flag, where there
is a shaft the same depth ; the Joe Mar
shall, Pine Tree and others. In the hill
side sloping towards Silver Bow creek,
is Dr. Ford's Mountain Spring lode; then
the Gem, upon which the Doctor and
Mr. Reagan are working away jnost ever
getically. Half a mile southeast from
this is the Mountain Chief, five hundred
feet of which was bought last summer
by Mr. Berkin, for Capt. N. Wall. who
has started a tunnel to tap the vein at a
depth of forty-five feet. A shaft vas
started, but at the depth of twenty-two
feet had to be abandoned on account of
the abundance of water in the bottom of
the shaft. There is a width of four feet
of very solid and rich copper ore. It is
of the kind known to miners as Pea rock
ore, and shows some beautiful speci
mens. The Mountain Chief is one of the
most promising lodes in the district. A
short distance south of it is the Veritas
and Cosmopolitan, on the latter a shaft
twenty-five feet deep. Near by is the
Washington lode, cropping out strong
for a long distane. Half a mile west of
the town, in and near Missoula gulch,
are a mint of lodes which bid fair to be

that we of Bozeman have not been be

On the eventful Tuesday evening last,
all the Masons and all who love the

for the purpose of having a grand en

gentlemanly officers, besides many of
our fair and brilliant faces who inhabit
the homely dwellings of stirring, enter

to glide from the old year to the new

seventy-five miles of regrets you have
painafally reminded us of.
Christmas day was of all the most ex
citing. Bozeman has seen. The polls
were opened at precisely 8 o'clock, for
the purpose of deciding where oar coun
ty seat should be located. No election,
I think, has ever occurred in Montana,
that elicited a much interest or called
out so many voters. Teamn were flying
in every direction, bringing In the luke
warm, flag flaunted to the breeze from
every quarter, whisky flowed like wa

clerks could scarcely take their names.
At one time, enthusiasm ran so high,
that it was obliged to work itself offin

knockdowns occurred, said to be very
atisfaetory to those mot interested.

Ornn came in from out doors, and Mr. Rickard
from the dining room. Mr. Ornn got up and
commenced speaking with Rickard, but he
spoke in a low tone and I could not under
stand all be said. He said he bad come for a
settlement and Rickard said be would settle
according to agreement. Ornn rsked whmt
the agreement was. Rickard told him that
he already knew. and if he a ould iot settle in
that way he could settle as he pleased, it made
no difference to him. Thir the last conversa
tion I heard diet.nctly. Orun stood on the
outside of the counter and had his hand in his
pocket, Rickard was behind the counter. I
next heard the report of a pistol. When I
heýrd the report I saw seoke ari.-ing foin the
out-ide of toe counter. I next saw Vi imul

their weapons. Arter the drlawing there was

Wmi. Reynolds, Joseph V. Stafford and Joseph

Senate confirmed his appointnient. Un
der the circumstances the confirmation
was like some of our military commis-.
sions, "merely complimentary."
"I long ago resolved not to decline any
office until responsibly invited to accept
or become a candidate therefor; and, as
I have never had a word or hint from
either the White House or the .State De
partment that I had been or would be
nominated to the Austrian Mission. I
am not at liberty todecline acommisskon
which has not been. and may not be ten
dered me. In order, however, to stop
the waste of stationery by gentlemen
who desire the poest of Secretary of Ie
gation, I am impelled to say that I par
pose not to leave. my own country at
present--certainly not till after the next
President is chosen. ?ossibly, General
Burnside, were he in military command
here, might move me through a court
martial; but dO far as may depend on
my own ehoil, propolse to stay on this
side of the Atlantic. H. G.
FATHIE AGAPIUS-RU88IAN PAPER
TO BE ETABLISHIED IN ALASKA.-.We
see it announced that Father Agapius,
by birth a Cosae and by religious pro
fession a member of the Greek Church,
intends shortly publishing in Sitka a
Ruso- American paper. The reverend
gentleman is an expatriate from Russia
on account of his liberal political opin
ions. He was formerly engaged in the
Bible House New York, as a supervisor
of the Bible and other publications in
the Bulgarian and other languages with
which he is familiar. He arrived in this
city a short time ago, and has with him
a font of Rnasian type, which he has
managed, with much seersy to procure
in portl s from his native country.
We proes me that the fat of having
this peculiar type la his pomeseioa CTe
